There is a rare piece of Johnny Depp the movie story hits the auction block…and the timing couldn’t be better for the motorcycle he used in “Cry-Baby” to pull off 6 figures.
The bike is sick…it’s a 1955 Harley Davidson Model K…and it’s the same one used on screen in the cult classic Johnny movie from 1990.
The Harley is up for sale through Kruse GWS Auctions and the opening bid is set at $250,000… with potential buyers having to bid in increments of $25,000 if they want to win Johnny’s movie.
If that sounds a little steep, keep in mind the huge wave of popularity that Johnny has been riding since. win the libel suit more Amber Heard. The thing is, all things Depp-related are commodities these days.
The auction house says the Harley was the “picture bike” used throughout filming in principal photography…both on location in Maryland and also in Hollywood.
The bike has changed hands over the years and is currently on display in a museum in Branson, Missouri, after years of display at various exhibits around the country.
Also included in the auction is Janis Joplinof the mandolin, which she once gave to jimi hendrix.
The instrument is hand painted with flowers and phrases… including “Love Thy Neighbor” and Jimi’s name. The auction house says the mandolin has been in a private collection for 20 years and is on the market for the first time. They estimate it will cost $250,000.
The auction opens June 25.
